for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in both ohio and florida bandit is winning margin so you can credibly argue that vote mattered a lot and if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. and then i looked at polls and said what if romney and obama had more -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama, 20 to two romney and quite frankly it has been about that -- it's been roughly 3-1. obama, that's the highest it's been quite frankly it's been high all through. but what if they split more or less evenly over romney got a little bit more? if romney had 151% of the lgbt vote he would have won ohio, florida and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. so, in florida all he had to do was win a little over a third of the lgbt vote to win those states. so, while i don't think that -- in the way that we are not talking about immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy on, i don't think it's quite that level of impact but a little bit of movement in the

't. to a much more detailed system of school report cards. this is something that's been done in florida and other states and it's served to catalyze and generate school performance. the other thing as i said much more on the croats and achievement with schools are contrary thing so we can empower to make informed decisions about their child education. >> but as you yourself have noted some of some of the incentives have encouraged state leaders to inflate the performance of schools. when you focus on the level the students are achieving the way you because students in particular you focus on the share of students that are proficient and use that as you're only indicator of success then there are two ways to improve the rates one is through achievement and the worst to lower the definition of proficiency and we have seen too much of the latter so shifting to a focus on growth is one way to deal with some of those incentives. second, romney emphasized the importance of not prescribing a single definition of provisions standards across the state making sure the states with the lowest perfo

. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming

: the senator from florida is recognized. mr. nelson: i ask consent that the quorum call be lifted. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. nelson: mr. president, while we're waiting for further debate on the defense bill and any possible amendments, i wanted to offer a couple of comments as to all of the concern in the nation about the fiscal cliff and as we approach that fateful day of december the 31st, the need to get something done. in this senator's opinion, sequestration, which is this additional cut of a trillion dollars in a most unorthodox w way, it's like a meat cleaver coming down and cutting off -- i'm rounding here -- a half a trillion off of defense and a half a trillion off of non-defense discretionary. sequestration, let's remember in the historical context, was never supposed to happen. sequestration was a mechanism that was set up in the budget control act in august of 2011 -- almost a year and a half ago -- after the agreement, the act called for $1 trillion being cut off of the top to begin with and it set up a process by which additional deficit reductio

's also striking that i think president obama won almost half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70 # ,000 votes, and which, i think, reveals that the politics within the community may be changing significantly. again, this probably shouldn't have come as a great surprise or shock to those following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement and opening from the obama -- with cuba from the obama administration's point of view, i think, there's been important steps that were made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans making travel more flexible, but from the latin american perspective, there's a sense not much changed, and there's a hope that perhaps in the second term there may be more of a change moving forward. on the issue as well, we'd have to look carefully at the composition of the congress and pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress with important positions no longer homing them in the next couple o

the election is going. ohio of course is the state that everyone has been paying most attention to and florida is a perennial contender but both of those states could be pretty late in telling us very much, so virginia could give clues if there is a late surge of voters that haven't been picked up in the polls that would be evident. similarly, if obama is getting a large turnout among minority voters, which is crucial for his reelection, that would show up in virginia. so come early in the day, early in the evening i will be watching and i guess i will be joining everybody else in watching ohio with any attention to hamilton county in cincinnati and the counties just outside of hamilton. in 2008 he was the first democrat to carry the county since lyndon johnson. he will probably need to carry it again if he is going to win ohio. all the other side, those counties just outside of hamilton in particular is a very large republican county. john mccain underperformed there. if mitt romney is going to carry the state he will have to do much better. >> david lauter is the washington bureau of chief o
